Summary by: John C.
Ryoko is a young man who came into the world through a "rip." Ryoko is from another dimension, he came from a manga. He came to the comic book world (or real world as some characters may say). He appears as the title suggests: like a manga character.He has a friend, a scientist named Capeletti that is working on a machine that will send Ryoko back to the manga world. Capeletti is invited to go a party. But since he is working on the machine, he sends Ryoko in his place.
Arriving at the party, the people were surprised to see him because of his strange appearance.
There he meets Marissa, a young teenager.He eventually falls in love with her and she shares the same feeling towards Ryoko. Because of his strange appearance and behavior, Ryoko gets into many fights with students.
From time to time, the "rip" opens, and monsters commonly referred to as "kaiju" appear. Capeletti and Ryoko have to prevent that from happening to avoid danger. The mission is that as soon as the machine is fixed, Ryoko leaves and the "rip" will be closed forever. Ryoko is now forced to choose if he should stay, or come back home to the manga world.
